Ocean and Seabed Acoustics: A Theory of Wave Propagation

Book Description

Respected scientist and educator George V. Frisk draws on his extensive professional experience to demonstrate how the ocean environment provides an excellent setting in which to display general principles of wave propagation that are also applicable to other areas of wave physics. Ocean and Seabed Acoustics proceeds with a derivation of elementary solutions to the wave equation in free space and then progressively addresses problems of increasing complexity. This book concludes with a discussion of acoustic wave propagation due to a point source in an inhomogeneous waveguide with lossy boundaries.
